We knew very little about Venice when we booked up. Hotel was in Cannareggio are and we were about 20 mins walk from railway station and 10 minutes to Rialto. Main street is Strada Nuova and has a good selection of shops bars and eateries...More
We stayed in this area and it was nice and quiet and away from the main touristy areas. It's near enough and the main attractions are not too far either by Water bus or on foot. There are quiet bars and restaurants on either side...More
As soon you go off the main route into town there are some very nice area's including Ghetto which has a complete different style as the rest of Venice (Higher houses, only 2 bridges to get in and out) and nice piece of history. Most...More
We are walkers, and armed with a map, we took several long strolls through this largest section of the cities. This is not a tourist crowded area, and we were able to witness every-day life in this great city. Be prepared to get lost once...More
Our hotel was on Carnnaregio and we were happy to discover some nice eateries and alleyways to explore. Carnnaregio is blessed with a large resident population, so it’s a great haven from the crowds.
The island is conveniently located and served by several vaporetto stops....More
We decided to stay a little out the main area as this was our second visit to Venice and didn't want the bustle. I'm so glad we chose this area, it felt so much more Venetian, even though it was still pretty busy it was...More
Cannaregio is the second largest sestiere (district) with its busy Santa Lucia train station. Many transplanted Venetians commute from the outlying areas, “terra firma” to the locals, which is shorthand for any place that is not Venice. Two Grand Canal bridges serve Cannaregio, the newest (Constitution, 2008) still a local hotbed of controversy. Ponte degli Scalzi is a busy link to the train station. Nearby
shops on the Lista di Spagna offer specialties like pastries and coffee that lure Venetians with a down-to-earth attitude. The Ghetto, where the Jewish population was segregated in Cannaregio, has five historic synagogues with an active Jewish community. The Fondamente Nove bustles with foot traffic to the Rialto and San Marco while vaporettos (water taxis) head to Murano and other islands. Side streets lead into quiet picturesque neighborhoods and palaces like Ca' d'Oro rise directly out of the water.

Hi. I’ve been in Venice two months ago and also stayed in Cannaregio . The best thing of staying there is that you are 5m on foot from the Fondamenta nove, where you can board in a boat that can take you to the islands. I’ve prefered taking all day, because alilaguna visits to Burano, Murano and Torcello are too quick! We ‘ve stayed all morning in Burano and had lunch there.

One more thought. For Christmas eve it may be very advisable to reserve a dinner in a restaurant (and see through internet if it is open). Otherwise it may happen that you will not find any place available. All can be fully... More

Hi Thanks for your question. Venice is not cheap but there are ways to save money. Walk everywhere as it is compact city and you miss a lot by going by boat. Eat in the smaller tucked away restaurants. Use the buses from the airport instead of taxis or boats. Buy snacks such as sandwiches from snack bars. Have a great time but be very wary of pickpockets in the airport. If you think you will need any money get it out of your wallet on the plane then safely put it away.
